Peanut Brittle

I love the alchemy of making candy.  I'm always amazed that such simple ingredients and a bit of heat can turn into something so tasty.

I used this recipe, substituting dry roasted peanuts for the raw, because that's what I had in my pantry.
The recipe made about 1 1/2 lbs. of the candy.  So simple, so good.  Make some, but make sure you have a cup of ice water nearby when you do.  When cooled, it is a taste of heaven; when molten it burns like hades.
